C Programming with Solved Problems
by Dr P Sojal Lal, FIE
Director, Asian Institute of Petroleum and Construction Technology
(An ISO 9001:2008 Certified Organisation) Affiliated to : National Centre
for Labour and Learning Cochin, Kerala
C is a general purpose, high-level procedural language. It was designed to be
compiled using a compiler to provide low level access to memory, to provide
language constructs that map efficiently to machine instructions and to require
minimal run time support. C is therefore useful for many applications that had
formerly been coded in assembly language.
C is widely available and the compilers, libraries and interpreters of other
programming languages are often implemented in C. The primary
implementations of Python, Perl 5 and PHP are all written in C.
Chapter 1 of this book shares the fundamentals of C programming. The second
Chapter introduces the learner to C programming. The Control Statements are introduced in Chapter 3 and moves to
Advanced Control Statements in Chapter 4. The Arrays are explained in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 takes care of the
functions. Chapter 7 goes into the details of String Handling. Chapter 8 gives detailed information on Structure &
Union. Chapter 9 teaches about pointers. Files are explained in detail in Chapter 10. The advanced topics in C like
typedefs, enumerated data types, command line arguments, macros and pre-processors are taken care in Chapter 11.
Ample solved programs are provided in each Chapter.
